I bought this dress after I had my daughter. I was feeling all proud that I had lost (most) of the baby weight and was stoked to be feeling myself again. I think I went a bit too far. For the first two months it just sat in my closet. I knew it was there but it was too much of a commitment for me to handle. Then I started trying it on in the mornings with the intention of wearing it and then just as I'm about to head out the door I would run back upstairs and do a last minute change (I have embarrassingly done that a total of 3 times). I finally made the commitment and wore this through a full work day this week. The entire day I was in anticipation of taking the damn thing off. I originally thought that I was uncomfortable with my body but I now know that I was just plain uncomfortable. I HATE bodycon clothing. I feel so liberated knowing that for sure. It wasn't that I hated my body, in fact the vertical lines in the dress and the colour (obvs) were quite flattering considering its skintightedness (I know that's not a word). I think I may be able to officially take the oath this time and say that I'll never buy a skin tight ass dress for everyday wear again. Eff that nonsense (evening wear is worth the sacrifice, I'm not ready to give that up quite yet). So now I can go back to my loose, body grazing threads and not look back. Ahhhhh. That's the sound of relief. Things I also hate include but are not limited to: belts, ANYTHING that ties around my waist, pushup bras, underwire bras, bulky jewellery, or anything that aggressively touches my body. Am I alone here? Do I have a complex? Is this normal?
Side note: I was pretty stoked about this everyday makeup look. Which I now do everyday. Here's what I used:
Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream by L'oreal in Medium, MAC Bronzing Powder, Mac Highlighter in Global Glow, MAC Pro Long wear Concealer in NC20, Anastasia Eye Shadow in Caramel, Clinique Skinny Stick in Black (my new fave eye liner) and L'oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black, and Maybelline Lipstick in Maple Kiss.
